for the leaping greenly spirit of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural
which is infinite
which is yes
"(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
"how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any - lifted from the no
of all nothing - human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
"(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)"

my first run in
The beauty of this morning has only magnified as the day's wore on (What a difference 10 days makes, eh?) and I've found myself in an exceedingly good mood, especially for a Monday after a somewhat emotionally exhausting weekend. The big melt of 2013 is (finally) officially upon us and it's hard not to feel
Hey look, a garden!
This afternoon I found the first teeny tiny nubbins of rhubarb poking through the ground. Time to give them a dose of compost and hope this is the year they'll actually give us a harvestable crop. I'm anxious to try out an Earl Grey vanilla rhubarb jam recipe.
Yesterday was transplant day for half of the seedlings, which means our dining table is history for the next month. I think the tomatoes are officially at the stage where they double in size each week.
Be sure to enjoy some sunshine today. It's the sun's birthday after all - today and every day.
